Cyclone Yasi

I'm scared. I can't imagine how those who are in Yasi's direct destruction path are feeling at this moment.There's a really eerie feeling outside, it's so still. No birds, no cicadas, nothing.
This is the biggest cyclone in Australia's history. Bigger than Tracey. Bigger than Hamish. Bigger than Glenda. Bigger than Larry!
I have toured up to Cooktown and out to Mount Isa. I know these places. I love these places. To think of the damage this cyclone will cause...
I'm scared.

I can't imagine the anxiety that the locals are feeling as this thing approaches, I'm one of those that would be driving as far away as I could!

I am thinking of you Amanda. I had heard all of the birds had flown away, it's incredible they can sense what's coming. Hope you and your loved ones and animals are ok.

OH goodness - I have chills. Mother Nature sure can be nasty. This year seems to be full of huge storms.

Here's hoping Yasi simmers down before coming ashore.
